The lollipop lady also telephoned Inspector Spectre, one day, saying it was an emergency. She asked him to call around at the school – It was important – a matter of urgency. Inspector Spectre came straight away … The lollipop lady was, of course, great at showing people the way !  Someone had taken her lollipop stick, she asked Inspector Spectre to catch the crook quick. Not only that but the letters in her book had vanished and the Lollipop Lady said she didn’t know a single word of Spanish !
